Wolves earned only their second Premier League victory of the season with a marginal, 0-1 away victory at St Mary’s. And it was a goal from Raul Jimenez that ultimately condemned Southampton to a sixth consecutive league defeat. So, in Premier League football results, Wolves won on Jimenez’s goal
Both teams threatened in the first half but didn’t produce much of note. Indeed, there was a distinct lack of quality in the final third for much of the game.
Nathan Redmond had the ball in the back of the net for Southampton shortly before halftime. However, referees raised the flag to indicate that he was offside and the goal did not count.
But Jimenez’s moment of brilliance came on the hour mark with a goal worthy of winning the game.
Premier League Football Results – Wolves Won on Jimenez’s Goal
Raul Jimenez delivered a strike of his own creation.
The Mexican raced onto a long ball from Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa, outmuscling Jan Bednarek, flooring Mohammed Salisu, beating Bednarek again, and then, finally, coolly slotting home.
Jimenez made all the difference for the Wolves, scoring his first goal since suffering a fractured skull in November 2020.
After forcing goalkeeper Sa into several saves, this goal eventually did knock the wind out of Southampton.
They then huffed and puffed all the way to the end, but Wolves (the football news) stood firm this time.
